This San Diego jamband has left the Crazy Horse crowd in a state of amazement on multiple occasions. Their signature fusion of high-octane rock, groove-funk, speed jazz, swanky hip-hop and So Cal reggae is something to marvel upon. They have a keen sense of showmanship, thoughtful lyrics, deep grooves and big ears for improvisation. Sometimes streamlining can be a great thing as they aim to prove with their new lineup.

Fresh off a national tour opening for Blues Traveler, this band from Joshua Tree is blazing through the collective consciousness from coast to coast. Gene Evaro Jr. is a virtuoso guitarist with a voice drenched in honey and a timeless spirit. His band (which happens to include one of the most bad ass female bassists you’ve ever seen) is a multi-limbed organism swimming through a sea of soul, R&B, funk and rock. He brought the house down each time he has played the Crazy Horse. His stage presence and sound can’t help but evoke thoughts of Prince.

Jerry Joseph is an acclaimed singer/songwriter/guitarist best known for his monumental contributions to Widespread Panic’s song catalog. He is a force of nature, cutting to the core of raw emotion through his lyrical mastery. His songs often possess a dark undercurrent, contrasted beautifully with themes of salvation. Along with his band, who are legends in their home of Portland, OR, they embark on a special acoustic tour. Their typically heavy exploration through the realms of rock, soul, blues and gritty Americana will shimmer with elegance and nuance in this stripped down format. This is our version of going to church on a Sunday.

This funky jam-grass sensation from San Diego has been seducing audiences up and down the West Coast. They won “Best Americana Band” at the 2017 San Diego Music Awards which is nothing to shake a stick at. Reminiscent of early String Cheese Incident and The Avett Brothers, except with a strong female vocal presence, this is music that just makes you feel good. Their sets are intertwined with classic covers, instantly adorable originals and beautiful harmonies.

We couldn’t have picked a more fitting occasion to finally welcome this Bay Area band. Yes, they are in fact led by a cellist. The extent of their dirtiness is up to you to decide. This is a high energy spin on blues and bluegrass with a forceful sound honed from touring around the globe. Full of heart, seductive allure and rhythmic catapulsion, Dirty Cello is ready to take the Crazy Horse on a wild ride.

This band of bad ass pickers from Sonoma has become a local favorite over the past few years. The music is the equivalent of a runaway wagon ride careening around blind curves through majestic mountainous terrain. They distill pure delight as their confluence of psychedelic jam-grass and rollicking Americana takes control.

When people say that music is more powerful than any drug, this is the kind of stuff they’re talking about. Every time this band plays the Crazy Horse, monumental performances transpire. The power trio from Southern California lives up to its name when their relentlessly rocking, deliciously funky, irresistibly soulful sound is set in motion. It’s a family affair with brothers Manny Sanchez on drums and lead vocals and Ronnie Sanchez on bass. Guitarist Sarven Manguiat slices through the rhythmic soup with an electrifying presence. GrooveSession is guaranteed to drop jaws with a mix of inspiring originals and genre-spanning covers. We’re insanely excited to hear the brand new material from their latest release – “Free as you Wanna Be.”

This new early bird event is already the talk of the town. Grease, Grit & Grime has become a local institution for anyone who loves the blues. They like to call it “Dirty Blues” but it goes down smooth like a spoonful of honey and a shot of good whiskey. When it comes to the sultry, dance-inducing side of the blues equation, you can be sure they have that covered.
